Styling toddlers’ natural hair can be difficult, but these cute yet simple styles could be perfect. Beads make cornrows easy to style while remaining stylish. Additionally, adding beads in different patterns, such as hearts or triangles, adds even more style and personality to your cornrows.
Bantu knots add texture and structure to natural hairstyles while being an eye-catching statement piece. They pair nicely with braids and other accessories to make an unforgettable style statement! Make Bantu knots smaller or larger depending on your taste and preference. Larger knots are known as Jumbo Bantu Knots and feature more distinct coiling effects that draw attention.
To achieve the look, begin with freshly washed and stretched locks. Moisturizing your hair during this style creation process is critical; try using a leave-in conditioner or moisturizing curl cream such as Mielle Rice Water Moisturizing Milk as needed. Once your hair is set, add a light oil coating such as coconut, olive, or argan to ensure smooth and frizz-free locks. Coconut, olive, or argan oils provide essential nutrients and moisturizers that keep locks strong and healthy.
Cornrows are an effective protective style for natural hair, protecting from heat and moisture damage while creating a stylish textured look year-round. Cornrows may last up to eight weeks! Try combining cornrows and bantu knots for an elegant, timeless style for special events. Crossed cornrows create an eye-catching design, while face-framing curls provide feminine elegance.
For a modern take on traditional style, try wearing small cornrows braided closer to the scalp and closer together. This look works well by itself or with extensions for added drama.
A twist-out is one of the most favored protective styles for natural hair. This effortless style works well for casual events and any length of hair, making it a good option for transitioners and big choppers looking to gain height in their locks. Twist-outs are beautiful because their look is timeless when finished, and they reveal more beauty once undone! A twist-out consists of many components, including braids, buns, and carefully angled sections of hair, which work together for an eye-catching final result.
Starting with clean and hydrated locks is to achieve a beautiful twist critical. A sulfate-free shampoo or cleansing conditioner may do the trick, while moisturizing cream may also help secure twists for a more defined look.
A ponytail may be necessary if you want a stylish but effortless look. Perfect for all hair textures and lengths, a ponytail keeps your locks out of your face while looking chic, running errands, or attending special occasions. Try wrapping your elastic (like Justine Marjan did here) with some of your own locks for an added polished finish!
For an adorable ponytail look, start by using sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, detangling with a wide-toothed comb, and lightly texturizing with texturizing spray at roots and lengths, gathering into a ponytail while leaving out some loose strands to frame your face – then finishing up by adding accessories such as scarves or barrettes to enhance the style further.
hair extensions are an excellent way to add length and volume to natural hair, designed to blend seamlessly so no one knows they are there. Different kinds of extensions exist, such as clip-ins, tape-ins, and sew-ins; you can use any combination to achieve any style, from big voluminous fros to natural blowouts or fluffy wash and go. With short hair, you may also be able to conceal half of your extensions using low ponytails; point cuts will make concealment simpler as well.
